BRAT: bisulfite-treated reads analysis tool

We present a new, accurate and efficient tool for mapping short reads obtained from the Illumina Genome Analyzer following sodium bisulfite conversion. Our tool, BRAT, supports single and paired-end reads and handles input files containing reads and mates of different lengths. BRAT is faster, maps more unique paired-end reads and has higher accuracy than existing programs. The software package includes tools to end-trim low-quality bases of the reads and to report nucleotide counts for mapped reads on the reference genome.

Availability: The source code is freely available for download at http://compbio.cs.ucr.edu/brat/ and is distributed as Open Source software under the GPLv3.0.
